Beauty: Blue Eyes on Fashion Week

I'm a little late for this since New York Fashion Week (S/S 2016) is old news. I'm loving the Spring 2016 blue eye trend. I know blue pops up here and there, but it was showing up a lot on the runway for the Spring/ Summer 2016 Ready to Wear.

From your subtle blue liner and blue mascara to the bold coloured thick liner/ cream shadow -- it's everywhere. The 70s are making it big on the runways, and that means makeup that channel the flower child, or the barely-there look. Every hue from the lightest blues to navy for a smudged grungy look (a la Marc Jacobs) were featured on the runways.

My favourite was Diane Von Furstenberg's RTW runway show. Pat McGrath did a wonderful job on the makeup. It's probably all the glitter and the mix of blue and teal/aquamarine eyeshadow that made it a multidimensional look. It keeps it more modern than a flat one colour shadow look.

Blue eyes wasn't exclusively on the New York runways. It was featured in London and Milan as well. No surprise if Paris Fashion Week also features any hues of blue/green as we speak. Not as big as in NYFW but the 70s vibes is still prominent through clothing.

In Milan, Missoni went for the smudged vibrant look using a cream product. They went for a powder blue, a teal and a cobalt for blues. There was also an orange-yellow on the runways on some models.

In London, Jonathan Saunders featured a cobalt liner around the eyes and Roksanda also featured the blue eyeshadow look.

 In Paris (so far), Maison Margiela had a very theatrical blue eye look. Trademark Galliano there. The blue eyeshadow look had a wing -- hitting two birds with a stone. Dries Van Noten went for a sparkly/metallic vibrant liner look -- very fun.

Will you be rocking the blue eye trend next spring? Spring is already here for us in the southern hemisphere and I'm all for that blue look.
